What's Up in Washington - Bridging the Gap: What does the future of the IIJA look like?

Strategic Issues / Public Policy

With the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) expiring in September 2026, the 119th Congress will be tasked with deciding the future of federal infrastructure spending. Therefore, we are at a critical juncture, where Congress is now not only examining how the implementation of the IIJA is going, but starting to determine if these investments should continue. To help illustrate the positive economic benefits for continuing to invest in infrastructure, ASCE recently released a new economic study, Bridging the Gap, which clearly demonstrates that if we maintain federal infrastructure spending at IIJA levels going forward, American families and businesses will benefit. In this session, learn more about the economic benefits if we continue to invest in infrastructure after 2026 and hear from policy experts about how Congress is preparing for a potential reauthorization of the IIJA.  A dynamic panel will discuss legislative trends to watch, as well as how reauthorization discussions will shift depending on who controls the House and Senate in the 119th Congress.
